You all must be worried about completing your syllabus before the GATE 2017 on time so that you can start revising and taking online test series for better hands-on practice but before you rush towards completing your syllabus as soon as possible have a look at our analysis that we did on last 5-6 year Mechanical engineering GATE  exam. Have a look at what we have found.

Analysis (2010-2015) of GATE Mechanical Engineering Exam

Name of the Subject  2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015
  Engineering Mathematics 9 12 15 15 19 15
  Engineering Mechanics  0  6  7  2  2 7
  Strength of Materials  5  14  11  6  8  5
  Theory of Machines  13  8  5  8  10 9
  Machine Design  4  0  0  8  6 5
  Fluid Mechanics  14  5  5  6  6  13
  Heat Transfer  2  4  6  10  5  2
  Thermodynamics  10  18  6  10  12  10
  Refrigeration & Air-Conditioning  2  2  7  0  1  0
  Manufacturing & Industrial Engineering  26  23  23  20  16  19
  General Aptitude (GA)  15  15  15  15  15  15

From this analysis, you can now estimate that what is being more frequent in GATE for Mechanical engineering exam. Also, this will help you to what you can avoid as well so that better time utilisation can be done. You can’t avoid subjects like General aptitude, Manufacturing & Industrial Engineering, Engineering Maths & Thermodynamics but you can do or leave any other subject in which you think you are not that much handy according to your wish and capacity.

Now, the important topics which need to be focussed on in every key subject of Mechanical Engineering from GATE point of view are as follows:

Engineering Mathematics

  • Matrices
  • Probability
  • Differential Equations

SOM  and Engineering Mechanics
